William Wegman channels his love of nature in an outdoor adventure for campers of all ages

Flo thinks the family’s last vacation together was just grand. Her little brother, Wendell, thinks it was absolutely terrible. So, being the good big sister that she can sometimes be, Flo has agreed to take Wendell on his very own camping adventure. They’re going to go canoeing, fishing, and hiking—well, as best they can in the comfort of their neighborhood.

In this follow-up to Flo & Wendell, Wegman’s celebrated return to children’s books, he again combines his signature Weimaraner photography with whimsical paintings. The result is a satisfying and kid-friendly picture book that will remind readers that camping is always an adventure—even when it’s close to home.


“The sophisticated sense of humor that Wegman is known for is on display…Another fun outing with this pair of winsome Weimaraners.” – School Library Journal

“Wegman’s understated narration provides lots of dry humor as the dogs test their canoeing skills, survive a “bear” encounter, and end their adventure the best way possible, toasting marshmallows.” – Publishers Weekly

Praise for Flo & Wendell:

*“The contrast between the dogs’ deadpan stares and their lives of suburban industriousness…will raise grins from even the crabbiest readers.” – Publishers Weekly, starred review

“The visual impact is playful and whimsical…a sure hit for Wegman fans.” – Kirkus Reviews
